HI there,
I have had the same problem as most of you. I seem to have fixed it by 
1. Bail out all the water from the inside
2. Remove the filter and 2 x mesh pieces.
3. Continue to bail out the water from the filter well.
4. You will probably find pieces of food or fat/debris in the bottom of the well. Remove these.
5. Tilt back the dishwasher at 45 degrees for 30 mins or so to drain and dry the flood sensor.
6. Boil a kettle and pour it down the well. Immediately put the dish washer on a eco wash (no tablets or anything) with half load (ie half water) and this will ease the water pump. 
7. Let the dishwasher run its cycle. 
8. Clean the filter again and the filter well.

It sounds quite long winded but with a £250 item you need to take care of it. Make sure you rinse most plates before loading in the future. 

Hope this helps!!!
Good Luck!!!

Kenwood KDW12ST3A dishwasher keeps bleeping and showing E4


Many owners manual list common error codes. I would check there first. If that doesn't work try repairclinic.com and access trouble shooting DIY help by model number for model specific information. Good luck.

I have e4 showing


E4 error indicate an abnormal water level which means too much inlet water (E5 also is refer at this fault).

I quote other comments/solution about this same error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had the e4 error code and i took the outer panel off and inside behind the power button is a grey reservoir tank which measures the water that goes inside the dishwasher which actually got bunged up with **** and grease causing the floaty thing to get jammed and cause the e4 code to come on which means abnormal water level the top to the reservoir just unclips on both sides then just clean all the gooey stuff out and put it back together it worked for me.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good luck.

My Kenwood Dishwasher shows an E4 error code


Howdy:) An E4 or E5 error indicate an abnormal water level which means too much inlet water. Here is the shortcut to the Kenwood PDF file with the user's manuals.

You can cut and paste it into your browser's address window. Your model was not indicated in your message, but the error codes are standard throughout the Kenwood models. I hope you find this useful:)

What men cod e4 on dishwosher kenwood kdw12st3a


Hi

Error e4 on Kenmore usually occurs when there is drain clogging or due to debris stuck in the bottom of the dishwasher. Drain out the excess water from the dishwasher, now remove the mesh and the filter. Now, check and remove any food material or debris stuck. Now pour 1-2 litres of luke warm water and let this water drain. After this replace the parts and run the dishwasher on eco mode without any tablets or soap. Try this 2-3 times and then reset the dishwasher by unplugging it for 5-10 minutes.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a Kenwood KDW12ST3A that intermittently shows E1 Thank you in advance for your help.


Hi
E1 means no inlet pressure. Sometimes fault code shows if machine takes too long to fill. Kindly check for blockage in inlet pipe. Also check if water inlet is not filling and check if the water outlet valve is opening and there is sufficient water pressure.

Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for any clarifications.
Thanks

E1 indicated long filling time. Perhaps the inlet filter has clogged. Check the inlet pipe and tap(faucet in usa).

I had E4. Initially couldn't get it to clear.

In desperation, switched it off, turned it on it side and drained it onto the floor.

The E4 disappeared and the dishwasher is working normally.

Error mesage E4


E4 commonly means an overflow detected in the bottom over flow tray - try removing the kick board from the front of the machine - you should see 2 plastic black panels about 4 inches wide each, using a flat edged screwdriver pop the panels off and you will see the mechanics of the machine - the base is classed as the over flow tray - when water fills this tray a polystyrene float is pushed up and an E4 error code is detected - tilt the dishwasher back and allow the machine to dry out before trying it again - this should work unless the water seal around the filter basket is broken - in this case an engineer should be called to replace this part. Hope this Helps.
Thanks
